Aye.... This is not an Israeli undertaking...This is an ORTHODOX/Conservative organization dedicated to reforming homosexuals. It has absolutely
nothing to do with Israel. If you actually understood Israeli academic thinking, you would understand that JONAH is regarded as offensive by most
I was actually messing around on a haaretz web-site when i stumbled on to this. Might be interesting if it actually works and i am not sure if this is
just propaganda or not but it seemed interesting insofar as actually addressing homosexuality.
There is absolutely nothing unique about the approach of JONAH towards homosexuality.
Why are some people born homosexual? Because deep within their unconscious psyche, there is an overdeveloped desire for the same sex. Perhaps in a
previous life they inculcated this trait? Or perhaps its a supressed aspect within the father that found expression through the child? Whichever the
case, homosexuality is just a deeply unconscious inclination. Like all natural born traits, homosexuality can be overcome through regimented thinking.
Of course, not everyone is along the same point of the spectrum. Some homosexuals are very deeply homosexual and for them it would require great
conviction and diligence to succeed in changing their feelings.
Another subtle aspect to treatment is how one relates to his homosexual feelings. If someone is emotionally adverse to them, he in fact attracts the
feelings. For instance, if someone with a social phobia goes into a situation with a fear, apprehension and worry that he wont perform well, he wont.
He'll attract to himself the very feelings he seeks to push away. Similarily, a homosexual who has deeply adverse feelings to his homosexuality will
be entrapped and snared by his complex towards it. Paradoxically, the more he desires to overcome his homosexuality, the more it sticks to him.
This is the same with all emotional disorders, and as we know, this can be overcome through disciplined thinking.
Sexuality is the most deeply rooted emotional energy man has. It is also the most energetic, and regarded as the source energy of consciousness. Thus,
to overcome ones sexual inclination requires complete mastery over the self/ego. One has to understand the dynamics of his consciousness and
unconscious, and he cant allow feelings of doubt to creep in and prevent his self transformation.
Eventually, active imagination (cultivating a desire for the sex opposite to your desire) will elicit initial feelings. The more one sticks to this
line of thinking, the more derooted and depersonalied his earlier feelings become.
The idea that homosexuality is 'permanent' or an iireversible condition of the brain, is one of the most deceptive pseudo-scienctific beliefs out
there today. Consciousness precedes physical matter. Thinking can change the brain, and so the way one feels. If chemicals change physical anatomy,
and neurons elicit chemicals, and thoughts trigger neurons....then......its obvious. Thought controls how we feel.
